Sooner than you think, 3-D printed designer meals may be coming to a rocketship, or a restaurant, near you. Wired reports.
Right now, astronauts on the space station are eating the same seven days of food on rotations of two or three weeks,” said astronautical engineer Michelle Terfansky, who studied the potential and challenges of making 3-D printed food in space for a master’s thesis at the University of Southern California. “It gets the job done, but it’s not exactly home cooking.”

Researchers are focusing their efforts on a more efficient (and less costly) way of producing artificial meat. We shouldn't be expecting it in our supermarkets for another 15 to 20 years.
Watch the video below on artificial meat at If Conference in London, courtesy of 3Ders.Org.
-- Andras Forgacs, CEO of Modern Medow answers questions about 3D printed meat on Reddit. "What is the input , what is the output ? Explain like I am five, for 1 kg of meat , what is needed ?"
-- A very thorough article from the BBC on US start-up Modern Meadow, which believes it can make artificial raw meat using a 3D bioprinter.

3D printing food at home in 15 years using 'alternate ingredients: grass, insects, duckweed, beat leafs...
Cisco futurist Dave Evans said:"Not food, but the recipes to print food. Roughly 15 year horizon, but prototypes now." Evans predicted that in 15 years we will be able to "print" food.
In the video above, "3D Printing: now printing food too" made by TNO Research, are listed alternate ingredients to print 3D food: grass, algae, lupine seeds, insects, duckweed and beat leafs. Food can be made into new shapes, new structures, new textures and new flavors.
Really, that's what we'll be eating in 15 years?

The concept of this 3D chocolate printer is not new. What is new is that this whimsical 3D chocolate printer from the masterminds at Choc Edge has finally become available to the masses. TIME Techland reports.
TIME Techland wrote about it last year, and even linked to “edible chocolate structures” created as far back as 2007. If you can print plastic-like 3D objects, why not print 3D food objects? The technology isn’t quite advanced enough to easily create things from complex materials, but it can be used with simple foodstuffs like chocolate.
